Thanks so much, friend

Target has the best $1 items sometimes, like these striped notecards with envelopes that came in a set of 8, for just a buck. I bought these a long time ago, more than a year ago. Keep an eye out for similar bargains in the future, then embellish them to jazz them up!
  • Paper: Striped notecards from Target, Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip, Gable Green, Whisper White
  • Stamps: Think Happy Thoughts, Friendly Flowers
  • Accessories: Misc. ribbons, staples, "Ice" circle rhinestone brad, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Tools: Scallop, Key Tag, 1-3/8, 1-1/4 inch circle punches, Crop-o-Dile

Oh what fun!!!!!  I love the card.  We don't have Target here in Hawaii either!!!!  Oh well.  I love what you did.  The card makes me want to put on my party hat! =) 

At our meeting yesterday I learned how to use the crop-o-dile for embossing.  I would love to see how you do it, cause I still crease my paper.  I might have it on the wrong settings.  As for the Live your Dream stamp set, I'm OVER using it.  I just love it! 

You should dust off that Stamp-a-ma-jig!  It's the best thing ever.  It makes me not obsess over mounting sentiments straight (although I still do). If I need it to be perfect the stamp-a-ma-jig works wonders! 

BTW, love the other cards!JeNN

I just discovered your blog today. I love all your work. We have several "Blogs we Enjoy" in common: Katrina Werner, Kiyomi Krafts, and Taylored Expressions. I haven't tried embossing with my crop-o-dile.
